They should just cancel the FA Cup this season.

Absolutely not....if they want to cancel anything they can start with the Champions League & Europa League, stop hundreds & hundreds of players/officials country hopping through Europe

Perhaps they should call a halt with all top level football for a month or so, get the vaccines sorted and then start again in February? We are then a month closer to bringing the fans back too.
The problem here is the Euros are in June and they don't want to move them.

Should just cancel them full stop. Weren't they still planning to have the games in several countries instead of just 1 or 2? Madness, on all sorts of levels, even in a "normal" year!

Finish the domestic seasons if possible in each country to determine next season's league placing and have a fresh start next season.

Just award the Euros to England. We'd have won them anyway.

It was Champions League / Europa that should have been stopped....let domestic competitions take precedence with no pointless air travel - would have freed up plenty of midweeks to play any games postponed

40 positive tests in the Premier League latest round of tests, mainly from the recent partygoers.

This can't go on, surely, what with this more infectious strain.

If some of the footballers stopped being knobs it wouldn’t be an issue or less of one at least.  With the protocols they have set up they are probably the most stringent safety wise in the whole country. 

Without going into too much detail as much as I shout and ball at the tv when Tyrone does his once a match cock up, having something to look forward to each week does help my mental well being.  Living on your own ain’t easy.  I’m sure I’m not ‘alone’ in this view.

You’d think after the furore around Jack the clubs & players would have realised that they need to be squeaky clean at all times.

I’m firmly of the mind that bans should be in place for players ie Mandy / Mitrovic / the Palace lad / the Spurs & West Ham guys should be 3 game bans - if a club is found to have to postpone a game because of misbehaving players it should be 5 point deductions

Football is good for your mental health (when your team is winning). Having an upcoming game gives me something to look forward to and breaks of more than a few days can be a little painful. Elite sport can administer it's own safety protocol and keep itself relatively safe (as opposed to factories like JLR where 300 workers can come into contact with eachother). Stopping football for the duration of lockdown would put them at risk once they came back and economical pressures meant trying to play an obscene amount of games in a short space of time.

Agree that the penalties for players breaching the rules should be much more severe. Given the football industry has nailed its colours to the mast in terms of the financial consequences of failing to complete the games/competitions it’s odd to me that they’re not hammering the players who are being idiots.

I'm amazed that clubs haven't made a big deal of fining the players the maximum two weeks wages, and donating it to their local hospital.

Aston Villa can confirm that the Club has closed its Bodymoor Heath training ground after a significant Coronavirus outbreak.

A large number of first team players and staff returned positive tests after being routinely tested on Monday and immediately went into isolation.

A second round of testing was carried out immediately and produced more positive results today.

First team training ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup match with Liverpool was cancelled.

Discussions are ongoing between medical representatives of the Club, the Football Association and the Premier League.
